A teenage motorcyclist has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after a crash in Ipswich.

Police were called at 8.43am today to reports of a collision between a motorcycle and a car on Nacton Road near the Marshall garage.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended the scene and the motorcyclist - a teenage boy – was taken to hospital following the incident.

The road was partially blocked for around an hour as emergency services attended the incident.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said the road was cleared by 10.10am and the motorcyclist was left in the care of the ambulance service.
